Abstract:Little is known about the potential impact of indigenous healing on the depletion of plant resources. Based on 14 interviews with indigenous healers from Idere, a small, predominantly Yoruba, farming community in southwestern Nigeria, the present paper documents indigenous healers' perceptions of and concerns about the environment and the depletion and replacement of herbal resources, in terms of their own activities, as well as in the context of the felling of trees by foresters and charcoal producers.
